Frangelico and banana blondies

frangelico banana blondies

As weird as it may sound, I don’t like the banana-dark chocolate combo. On the other hand, there’s something about bananas, white chocolate and nuts that I simply adore!

That being said, I have a tendency to going back to a few old recipes and my banana blondies recipe is one of those. So I bought some bananas and headed home with those blondies in mind. But then, when I opened my Evernote notebook, I found this Smitten Kitchen recipe and decided to give it a try. And, boy, was it worth it! 🙂
